My local whenever I'm in Japan. I get to come to Japan quite often for work, and the coffee culture is defo on the rise, mainly in Hiroshima & Miyajima, BUT..... The guys at kurasu have totally made the effort to bring amazing melbourne style coffee to Japan. My favourite coffee place in Japan. Well worth the 14-16hr commute from melbourne. Unfortunately my (now 10yr old) co-reviewer has not had the pleasure of their hot chocolates. We'll keep you posted.

Thanks so much for the amazing review! We truly appreciate it, and looking forward to seeing you again with your little co-reviewer!
Finally! A comforting, steaming hot and delicious cup of coffee to make you feel at home. 5 days of drinking the local stuff had almost brought us to the brink of defeat with the search for a good place in Kyoto becoming almost more important than sight seeing itself. Kurasu was a cute corner store with a warm environment, friendly staff and fantastic coffee. I would recommend it to anyone visiting Kyoto looking for that cup of Australian goodness.

Happy we've made you feel at home, that's what we're here for! Hope you enjoyed Kyoto and glad we were part of your experience. Yozo
Those accustomed to a certain standard of coffee (you know who you are) will feel right at home here. Great atmosphere and staff, the beans are top notch. Have your espressos or V60 pourovers. Nice selection of ceramics and kettles for sale too! Must try: iced Matcha Latte with a shot of coffee. The guys have been in Australia for a bit, so Aussies can expect a familiar style of brew. I did not get to ask if mylk was available, but that's probably asking for a lot. Get on it!

Many thanks for stopping by and leaving us a stellar review! We truly enjoyed serving you
Very cute place with tasteful design. Nice English speaking staff and of course excellent coffee. They have a choice of different drinks espresso based or pour over. A must in Kyoto very close to the train station.

Thanks so much for the stellar review - glad you enjoyed our coffee as much as we enjoyed serving you!
A very special coffee spot in Kyoto if not Japan. From coffee to saucers everything about this place is unique and exceptional. A clear favourite of ours besides the flat white and handmade Japanese cups, was the iced matcha latte with matcha syrup. Absolutely delicious! The two girls working at Kurasu are also great fun and happy to help with any questions you may have about beans or their handmade Japanese coffee equipment :)
